The Palestine-Reader

dagwolf:

Brandon’s kept a good page with continuously updated links. I send people here a lot.

The following is a collection of articles, essays, and books on Palestine. These are not introduction texts to the question of Palestine or the Palestinain-Israeli “conflict”. If you need one read The Palestine-Israel Conflict by Gregory Harms and Todd Fery. Further, this is not an “unbiased” or “neutral” readng list. Everything listed below is counter-hegemonic. I feel absolutely no need to provide anything from the Zionist or Israeli point-of-view when that is the dominant narrative. With that said, I believe this provides a diverse, but in no means comprehensive, overview of the discourse on Palestine.

On Theory

On History

On Being Palestinian

On Zionism

On the Holocaust

On Media

On Al Nakba

On Genocide

On BDS

On Solutions

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

Reblogging again. snap recipients are the subject of some of the most self righteous, ignorant vitriol

Musings about all the things that have been happening this week…we keep getting left out more and more it seems…
The first panel is just a little story my grandma used to tell me…
I’m not saying we still don’t have to deal with that same type of racism but I’m worried about the fact that if we don’t get representation we’ll just disappear…

I love your comic.  The first panel really smacked me in the face, my grandpa told me about growing up feeling like a dog because of those signs.  This is important, this tells a story.  The century changes, the narrative does not.
